Today, I got up before sunrise and headed for the San Bernardino Mountains =
to try a different main destination than the trip I took there two years ag=
o (Holcomb Valley and the Onyx Peak area). My main objective was not gettin=
g a big butterfly count for species, but seeing if I could find Baird's Swa=
llowtail. I would end up doing two areas: Hwy 18 at milepost 63.51 and in t=
he high country on forest service roads.=C2=A0 I collected Baird's Swallowt=
ail in number's in the late 1970's and 1980's so my plan was to relocate on=
e of those areas today. I collected the Hwy. 18 spot about 9:30-10 AM and a=
gain 4:15 PM-440 PM, I was not looking for bairdii there.
The days finds:Propertius Duskywing (Erynnis propertius): 4 seen in the hig=
h countryPacuvius Duskywing (Erynnis pacuvius callidus)-around 20 in the hi=
gh countryFunereal Duskywing (Erynnis funeralis)-2 in the high country.Larg=
e White Skipper (Heliopetes ericetorum) common Hwy. 18, a few seen in the h=
igh country.Pale Swallowtail (Papilio eurymedon) 30 seen in the high countr=
y, partitioning chosen areas on hilltops and chasing away intruders.Baird's=
Swallowtail (Papilio machaon bairdii): One showed up near the top of the h=
ill at 11:30 AM where I had success with bairdii in 1978, 1979 and a few ti=
mes in the 1980's. It was immediately chased away by two Pale Swallowtails.=
A possible second individual (a large black and yellow butterfly) as I was=
preparing to leave a few minutes after 3 PM. It nearly flew into the open =
liftgate of my car parked at the base of the hill. I can't be absolutely su=
re the 2nd individual was not a Mourning Cloak, which seemed unlikely at th=
at spot.Checkered White (Pontia protodice): 3 or 4 on the E side of the San=
Bernardino's on Hwy. 18Cabbage White (Pieris rapae)-1 also at Hwy. 18Calif=
ornia Dogface (Zerene eurydice) singletons; a male at Hwy. 18 and another i=
n a residential area on a hill and another in the high country.Nut Brown Ha=
irstreak (Satyrium auretorum spadix): 5 in the early morning on buckwheats =
and a white flowering plant.Echo Azure (Celastrina echo): several in the hi=
gh countryMarine Blue (Leptotes marina): one on Hwy. 18Boisduval's Blue (Pl=
ebejus icarioides evius): about 10 at mid and high elevations.Acmon Blue (P=
lebejus acmon)-2 at high elevations.Bernardino Blue (Euphilotes Bernardino)=
: 4 or 5 on Hwy. 18.Coronis Fritillary (Speyeria coronis semiramis): only t=
wo at High elevation, common there 40 years agoEdith's Checkerspot (Euphydr=
yas editha augustina): one on small hilltop with paintbrush in the high cou=
ntryCalifornia Tortoiseshell (Nymphalis californica)-one netted and release=
d, all very wornPainted Lady (Vanessa cardui): 10-12 in the high country, a=
ll very wornWest Coast Lady (Vanessa annabella) 2 or 3 on the hill with the=
eurymedon and the bairdii, not seen till after 2 PMCalifornia Sister (Adel=
pha californica): 5 sightings off Hwy. 18Queen (Danaus gilippus thersippus)=
-maybe the most improbable find of all. Four found at the same time on the =
late afternoon stop on Hwy. 18.
